The objectives of this book might be summarized as (1) describing how brief, solution-focused therapy is different from other forms of therapy and their accompanying philosophical underpinnings, and (2) showing how these differences combine to make a difference that works.


De Shazer places his brief therapy work and that of his colleagues at the Brief Family Therapy Center (Milwaukee) within an overall philosophical position, based on Wittgenstein, Derrida, and others, that situates the solution-oriented model within the developing purview of post-structuralist thought.
